Columbia College Degree Application

In order to be cleared for your degree, you must submit a degree application via SSOL which can be found under 'Degree App Status'. Please note the deadlines for submission on the Registrar's website

Degree Application Process:

  • You cannot change your legal first or last name on this form. Any changes to your legal first or last name must be made via the Registrar’s “Name Change Affidavit” process.  If you want your middle name to appear on your diploma, ensure that it is included on this form in the “Name” field. You may request that your middle name be abbreviated or omitted if you prefer. 

  • You will get an email receipt from the Registrar once your application has been received. You will see that your application has been marked as submitted on your SSOL account, under “Degree App Status."

  • If any of your programs of study are inaccurate, please reach out to your advisor to make the changes prior to applying for your degree. 


Please email with any questions or concerns regarding your diploma delivery.
